Organism and population-level ecological models for chemical risk assessment
Etterson, M., D. Lehmann, D. Nacci, AND N. Schumaker. Organism and population-level ecological models for chemical risk assessment. BOSC, Research Triangle Park, NC, November 17, 2016.
Ecological risk assessment typically focuses on animal populations as endpoints for regulatory ecotoxicology. Scientists at USEPA are developing models for animal populations exposed to a wide range of chemicals from pesticides to emerging contaminants. Modeled taxa include aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates, fish, amphibians, and birds, and employ a wide range of methods, from matrix-based projection models to mechanistic bioenergetics models and spatially explicit population models.
